25146 Quantitative Inorganic Analysis

Course Description

Introduction to analytical chemistry, errors in chemical analysis, gravimetric methods of analysis, titaramitic methods analysis, electrochemical methods of analysis.

Learning Objective

  • Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • • Demonstrate a mastery of various methods of expressing concentration.
  • • Describe the various spectrochemical techniques as described within the course.
  • • Demonstrate an understanding of electrochemistry and the methods used to study the response of an electrolyte through current of potential.
  • • Understand the goals of analytical chemistry, i.e., the questions analytical chemists seek to answer, and the steps required to perform quantitative analysis.
  • • Understand the difference between accuracy and precision and the figures of merit used to quantify them (relative error and relative standard deviation).
  • • Understand how chemical reactions may be utilized for the quantitative measurement of one or more compounds (analytes) in a sample.
  • • Develop critical reasoning skills so that a student can calculate the concentration of analyte in an unknown sample (and the associated uncertainty, when applicable), given an appropriate set of data.
